Michael Conley Biography

Michael studied musical theatre at Abilene Christian University in Texas but abandoned his studies to pursue a career in New York.

He quickly ingratiated himself into the city's cabaret scene and began hosting a weekly revue of stand-up and musical comedy (the critically acclaimed GAY & LESBIAN COMEDY FEST). At this point Michael began writing lyrics and introducing original songs into his cabaret performances. In 2002, the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) nominated his ‚ÄėThe Drinking Song‚Äô for outstanding special material. Michael also contributed opening numbers to two MAC-award winning shows, THE POOLE PARTY and THE NEXT BIG BROADWAY MUSICAL (both of which he hosted on occasion).

In 2003, Michael starred in 'HELLO, BOYS!' a musical revue of songs he wrote with Matthew Loren Cohen. For this show he was nominated for another MAC award and received the Cabaret Hotline award for Musical Theatre Performer. For the next few years, Michael continued to perform and revise HELLO, BOYS! to critical acclaim.

In late 2007, he moved to London. Since arriving Michael has become an active member of Mercury Musical Development (MMD) and is a founding (and board) member of the BOOK Music & Lyrics workshop.
